or so here. he was the head of the militant wing of hamas so israel felt justified. many civilians were killed in different gaza attacks. the israeli defense sources bragging about it on twitter: >> not only that, on you tube, they put out a video of the actual hit. now, the person inside this car is going to die just so you know. i'm giving you warning there. in fact, there's two people standards inside the car photograph for hamas was also killed in that strike. now if that wasn't enough, more insult to injury, back on twitter: >> now sure, hitting hamas's hillmilitary many would find that understandable. that hit is certainly an open question. civilians getting killed, i hope would have a lot less support. now one civilian killed was an 11-month-old boy. he is the son of b.b.c. average reporter jihaddal musharawi. that picture's now been seen around the world. i have a young son and it affected me significantly. here's a report from bbc. >> my sister in law was killed along with my son brother and my other son were wounded. what did my son do to die like this? what was his mistake? h

. the conflict of hamas and israel is moving fast and getting bloodier. today's death toll, 18. three israelis killed in rocket strikes from gaza. while an aide worker reported 15 people, palestinians, rather, were killed by israeli strikes. and this, many believe, was the tipping point. an israeli air strike yesterday ended up killing nine people including the young child of the target. ahmed jabari. he was a founder and military leader of hamas in that vehicle you saw exploded. the group that controls gaza's government. hamas, that is. today, palestinians carried his body through the streets on the way to his funeral and as they mourn israeli forces are giving the play by play of their offensive on the israeli defense forces website reporting the spot under attack are hamas missile launch sites and israel is not just taking out the launchers. its teams are detonating rockets in the air. take a look. >> israel says it's responding to what's been calling the raining of bombs by hamas on israeli areas that border gaza. >> no government would tolerate a situation where nearly a fifth of its peop
500 hamas rockets have fallen in israel. israeli air strikes have killed at least 90 gazans. nbc's richard engel, stephanie gosk and ayman mohyeldin are in the region reporting the latest from gaza to tel aviv. first richard engel in gaza, what is the latest from your vantage point and on the cease-fire negotiations? >> we are hearing that there are serious cease-fire negotiations going on right now. when you're on the ground here in gaza it doesn't exactly feel that way. there have been many air strikes today, a media building was killed. israel is sort of -- [ inaudible ] on hamas leader or one palestinian militant at a time. sources who are involved in the israeli/palestinian negotiations working toward a cease-fire, these talks taking place in cairo have told nbc news they are serious, that they are making progress and that this is how the negotiations stand right at this moment. the israelis want a two-part deal, a two-stage deal. the first part would be an immediate hostility, immediate cessation of violence, both sides stop attacking each other. that would be unconditional
can sometimes seem in sort supply is that hamas and the israeli government reached a cease-fire agreement to stop the violence between the two that left six israelis and 168 palestinians dead in the course of a week. upon anonsment of the cease-fire, gazans streamed out into the streets to celebrate. one poll showed that 31% of israelis approved of the cease-fire, while 49% were opposed. though hamas paid a heavy price during the bombing, the destruction of main government buildings, the death of the military commander, as well as according to estimates, over 50 other fighters and an unknown amount of munitions destroy in the bombings, it was able to point to the cease-fire as a concrete victory. the text of the agreement reads in part, israel should stop all hostilities in the gaza strip land sea and air. no more operations like the one that killed jabari and israel is to commence quote opening the crossings and facilitating the movements of people and transfer of goods and procedures of implementation shall be dealt with after 24 hours from the start of the cease-fire. th
the region can sometimes seem in short supply. hamas and the israeli government reached a cease-fire to stop the violence that left some dead in the course of the week. upon the announcement, they went out into the streets to celebrate while the opinion was cooler toward the news. one poll showed 31% of them approved of the cease-fire and 49% for opposed. hamas paid a heavy price, the destruction of the government buildings, estimates of 50 other fighters destroyed in bombings was able to point to the cease-fire as a victory. the text of the cease-fire reads in part, israel should stop all hostilities in the gaza strip, land, sea and erin colluding the targeting of individuals. israel is to commence, quote, opening the crossing and facilitating the movement of people and transfer of goods and targeting residents in border areas and implementation will be dealt with. that is why it is seen to loosen the restrictions. in other words, if it holds, and that is definitely a big if at this moment, it will represent a net benefit to the estimates 1.7 million people living in the gaza strip. for exa
: new signs of tough challenges ahead for gaza. number two leader of hamas now saying the group will not stop arming itself. a commented suggesting that indirect negotiations on the border deal could be very difficult. in the meantime, life at the gaza strip returning to normal after the week long strikes. tens of those of children heading back to school. cease-fire appears to be holding. conner powell with more on that. >> reporter: this is still fragile cease-fire. it is important to point out that the cease-fire is holding but still massive challenges has to be dealt with. israel and hamas will send representatives to cairo to continue negotiations through the mediators. later this next couple of days or so probably starting on monday, but there is talks from hamas saying they will continue to rearm and continue to fight, but right now the cease-fire is holding as part of the agreement. israel said they will ease the blockade around gaza, but israel wants guarantees for security because these are two of the really big points that will be worked out in the coming days. still,
a problem on the outside. hamas is claiming they had great achievements. if they get back into a conflict with the israelis, there go those achievements. and the israelis obviously want to have calm as well. so i think all three sides have an interest in preserving this. there will be tests from time to time, that's a given. the fact that the iranians will try to get arms in there very quickly is also a given. i think the israelis will act to prevent that but i don't think it will break down the cease-fire. >> and then we have another situation that may be a sideshow in terms of the impact but we have a vote scheduled for thursday at the united nations where the palestinians are seeking some legitimacy, the other palestinians, the fatah wing, mahmoud abbas is coming to new york to have a vote in the general assembly which will be a largely symbolic vote on statehood, especially after hamas has flexed its muscles and said military and not diplomacy is the way to legitimacy internationally, it seems loom foolhardy on the part of the palestinians. >> first of all, what's going on, you're pre
and hamas is that we don't know what role the egyptians are going to play here. the egyptians have been equivocal, as you know, on this whole issue of gaza and the sinai and all those things so it will be very interesting to see how the egyptians come down on this. i don't think there's any doubt this is a terrible escalation. thank god they've got iron dome but obviously, iron dome is not completely protective when you're looking at huge barrages of rockets. but this is incredibly serious and one that is going to require a lot of american leadership. >> let's turn again if i could to mitt romney, who has been coming out, giving some kind of defense for why he lost. there is a suggestion he's being a bit of a sore loser here, that by going on about the president giving gifts to minority groups and so on, really, he's not coming over in a very dignified way. you lost to barack obama before. should mitt romney be a little above this now and just take defeat gracefully? >> you know, i don't know. these things are always tough. but you know, i have a great line that i use all the time after
. just hours now into a ceasefire that ends the worst fighting between israel and hamas in years, one gaza city resident saying the morning coffee even tastes different, feeling as if there's a brand new start. good morning and happy thanks giving, i'm gregg jarrett in for bill hemmer. >> and i'm iowansly err hart. secretary clinton is telling us the international community will do its to make things better for both sides. >> the united states will work with partners across the region to consolidate this progress, improve conditions for the people of gaza, provide security for the people of israel. gregg: leland vittert is live in southern israel with the latest. leland? >> reporter: good morning, gregg. there's sort of a cold rain that has descended here on southern israel, but all is quiet on the southern front. the only sounds we are hearing is the tanks and the armored personnel carriers that the israeli army brought out to possibly launch a ground invasion of gaza now heading north, back to their bases. as life, at least a little bit, begins to return to normal. for the past eigh
. hamas has retaliated warning that israel has quote opened the gates of hell on itself. the state department issued a statement condemning the attack. i talked about his earlier with sara seidner and david kirk patrick of the "new york times." >> what is the latest on the fallout? >> what we are seeing are more rockets coming into israel. there have been dozens of air strikes as well since the killing of the leader of the hamas military wing. but he is one of the founders of hamas. how the government there israel is also telling us. and we have heard this from the military spokesperson and they are considering a ground war and have not given the go ahead for that. they are preparing but they are firing from the air. and we know that they have been firing from the sea. their ships anchored off of the sea there firing into gaza and according to residents there, that we spoke with, they say it seemed as if it was raining bombs in gaza. you can see the firing there. there is real concern here that there will be a full-scale war something like you saw in 2008 during the operation the c
